ME..On THIS DAY-20 Years AGO!

At 6pm, September 29, 1990
I had just given birth to my sweet angel-the oldest at age 20..
I was so young with such good skin..

My parents were SO SUPPORTIVE to me, their unmarried daughter.
I will never forget it.
How my dad went and got me a Big Mac and Fries after delivery...
How my mom stayed to help me for weeks after as my baby girl spent time in the NICU...

How we got our first photo together at K-Mart :)

And all her sweetness...

The oldest and I grew up together, side by side.

Now she's a grown up, married girl-all on her own, with her own hubby *sniff*!

Happy Birthday my sweet girl!
WE MADE IT!
I am proud of you and love you so much!

What can I say? We are so proud of you and Brooke....there have been a few "bumps in the road" but we all have waded through with God's help. And what beauty he has created, not only in looks but the contents of your heart, Jennifer. It is a joy to your dad and me to be your parents. We love you............

I was really blessed that you gave us a glimpse into your past.

P.S. I had the bangs, and the perm, too!

What would we do without wonderful parents? By the way, you are one of the few adoptees I've heard who sound grateful for their adopted parents. I've heard/read from so many who seem to be in constant mourning that they were not raised by their birth parents. I have five adopted children (soon to be more) and I'm almost beginning to wonder how many counselors we're going to have to go through to deal with the "adoption trauma" so many are talking about. Thanks for your upbeat attitude.
